Construction Crews are Making Progress at Mendota Elementary and Jefferson Middle Schools

Crews are making great progress on construction at Mendota Elementary and Jefferson Middle Schools. 

At Mendota, crews continue to install new flooring. They've already installed new ceilings, new boilers, new lights and a new fire alarm system. 

At Jefferson, crews built walls in the upstairs classrooms and installed new sinks. The main office area has been expanded and the library has been remodeled.

We are excited about the progress at both schools and can't wait to see the finished projects!

East High Theater Improvements Underway

Our high school auditoriums are used for a variety of purposes, including performances, athletic gatherings and community presentations. The needs of East High School's auditorium warranted the inclusion of a $4.3 million upgrade in our $41 million referendum in 2015. Construction is underway and the project's anticipated completion date is March 2017. We are excited for the opportunities the renovated theater will bring, as well as the long-range planning work happening at schools across MMSD.
